  • 2 cups peas, frozen
  • 1 pound pork sausage or farmer sausage
  • 1 10 oz. / 284 ml can condensed tomato soup
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Lightly grease 2 1/2 quart casserole dish.
  2. Layer the potatoes, onions and carrots.
  3. Sprinkle with a layer of rice and then peas.
  4. Arrange sausages on top.
  5. Combine tomato soup with water and pour evenly over casserole.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Cover and bake at 350°F for about 2 hours..until vegetables are tender and rice is cooked.
